No statistics - Webalizer

    I have installed a server according “The Perfect setup for Debian Sarge”
    Although webalizer is installed, I can not use it.
    I know that stats are not available during the first 24 hours, but that is not the question.
    If I go to address http://mydomain.tld/stats/ I receive an error message that this URL is not available.
    And yes there is no /web/stats/ directory on the server.

    What can be wrong?

    /var/www/webalizer is the default directory for the install of webalizer and thus the index page should be available in there. In the /etc/webalizer.conf you need to point it to the correct directory for polling.
    Have you added a cron job in /etc/cron.daily ?
    Are your logs of /var/log/apache/access.log type? If they aren't webalizer will error.
    Incidently you can manually run webalizer from the command line /usr/bin/webalizer (or locate it to find it). Then just run it and see what the output is. This will give you a clue as to where you went wrong.

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    I will check my system tonight.
    Strange to me is that I have setup a system with webalizer before.
    All acc. Falko’s “Perfect setup for Debian Sarge” and I had not to worry about Webalizer.
    Everything was functioning, right from the beginning.

    Who can help me a little further?

    Webalizer is run by ISPConfig and not directly from Cron. Did you install ISPConfig on this system?

    Hello Till,

    Yes, i have ISPConfig 2.2.0 installed on this system, but webalizer is not creating /web/stats/ directories for webstatistics.

    I do not know how to solve this. Can you give me advise?

    Statistics are available again

    I did this:

    /etc/init.d/cron stop
    pkill cron (Make sure no cron processes are left.)
    Edit your crontab (crontab -e) and save it again.
    Then restart cron: /etc/init.d/cron start

    And yes, it works!

    Thanks Falko,
